He regularly tops sexiest film star polls, so it is no wonder The Fifth Estate star was surrounded by females as he stepped out for lunch in London on Tuesday.
Benedict, 37, still kept his look quirky with a white T-shirt with red cartoonish lettering underneath his shirt, and was joined by two female friends for the outing.
Benedict finished off his smart off duty look with black skinny jeans and pale blue brogue style shoes.
The former Sherlock actor has just finished filming The Imitation Game where he plays mathematician and British cryptographer Alan Turing, due out in 2014.
In an interview with T magazine the actor revealed he is tired of playing intellectually demanding roles, having played Julian Assange in The Fifth Estate and Sherlock in the BBC TV series with a stratospherically high IQ.
The British actor said: ‘I am so ready to play a really dumb character.’
He also added that despite the female attention he has garnered from playing Sherlock, he doesn't think that the character in itself is necessarily one that should be seen as fanciable.
The Star Trek actor said: ‘I always make it clear that people who become obsessed with him or the idea of him - he’d destroy you,’ adding: ‘He is an absolute b*****d.’
He also added despite becoming more and more famous thanks to his big roles in Hollywood films, the actor has come up with a method to ensure he is not recognised in the street.
'There is a way of just shadowing through.' Benedict explained. 'The higher the walls, the more dark the windows, the bigger the sunglasses - the more people are going to look.’
Saying simply: ‘The greatest disguise is learning how to be invisible in plain sight.'
